    Narrow body seats needed

    Hi @Stevo1878 I've got some in the loft that I don't need. Where are you based? I was going to put them on eBay as they are of no use to me. Can post some photos up later today.

    Minor G'box leak advice

    That’s what’s confusing me. This is the rear of the box from the top with oil clearly having come out (but I don’t know what state it was in before as I’ve had the car since December); I’m afraid I have no idea. I am very limited in my mech knowledge - this is the first car I’ve been able to get hands on with.

    Minor G'box leak advice

    Thanks all this far! Fair point - 1.8 K series and a t9. Hopefully the below shows the leak;

    Minor G'box leak advice

    Hi folks, I unfortunately grounded the car last weekend and have spotted a very minor leak coming from in-between the bell housing and the main gearbox casing. It is by no means a massive leak - when cold, nothing comes out - when warm it is a very slight drop. I intend to keep the gbox oil topped up. However, I do want to get this fixed at some point - is this going to be an engine out job? I don't have an engine hoist and thus will need to get a local mechanic to do it... has anyone been in the same boat and any idea of costs? Many thanks, James

    Doors + Cage = might work :)

    Exactly what I asked on the Facebook group the other day!! Good to know!

    Longacre mirror - sorted!

    Jolly useful Chris, I’ve just bought one too. Absolute bargain!

    Well sorted road car wanted

    Chris do you know what the half doors are on this? They’re clearly not solid?

    Carbon NV half doors

  9. Hi folks, I attended the first of these for 2018 in January. It's repeated on the second Sunday of every month at the Black Swan in Ockham. Very simple turn up, park up, eat bacon sarnies, drink coffee and admire the plethora of cars. Very mixed bunch from Jag E Types to old school minis, to Lotus 7 bases to a new 488 spyder/alperta, whatever they call it...! It would be great to see a few more local Westies down there if anyone could be interested. More info on Bookface here; https://www.facebook.com/BlackSwanClassicCarMeet/ Anyone coming along, do come over and say hi. James

    Flippin' 'eck, keep the blue one! Or at least take the parts I want off it.
  12. Hi folks, I’m after some half doors. Grp, carbon, material of any kind. I intend to mess around with them to fit my cage (ie work out how to attach them!). Let me know what’s out there! Thanks, James

    Westfield SEiW 2000S Duratec 2.0

    Good luck with the sale if not already sold, chap - may I ask what the item is on the passenger side in this photo? It looks to be some form of cover, or bag, or clipped in door? Intrigued as looking for methods of reducing buffeting/mud/stones from the sides with a cage installed.
